Fans of the classic movie Ghostbusters are counting down to the release of the official reboot, dropping next summer.

While the old cast will be making cameos in the upcoming film, lovable green ghoul Slimer will not be returning to our screens. Director Paul Feig took to Twitter to dispel the rumors, shattering the hopes and dreams of millions of GB fanatics across the globe.

If it’s any consolation, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is reported to be making a return (in the form of an easter egg) as well as Ecto-1, proton packs and the PKE meters.


The Ghostbusters reboot is slated for release July 15, 2016.
